The ZSSA Council presents a biennial Corporate award to a company who has made an exceptional contribution to the advancement of Zoology in southern Africa. This assistance may be made through media coverage, donations or services rendered.

Should more than three nominations be received, a subcommittee consisting of the President, Vice-President and Honorary Secretary will narrow down the number of nominees to three. These will then be tabled at a Council meeting for a decision by ballot. The award is made at the banquet dinner during the biennial Conference. The ZSSA Council my hold over the award if suitable candidates are not nominated.
